Google "I can't find one person who has been using the Nexus 7 for an extended period of time, and hasn't seen a massive downgrade in performance. Just what kind of downgrade are we talking here? I cannot pick up my Nexus 7 without experiencing problems like a lag of ten seconds, or more, just to rotate the display; touches refusing to acknowledged; stuttering notification panel actions; and unresponsive apps." Fully and utterly agreed. My Nexus 7 was blazing-fast and awesome for a few months, and at some point, it just started sucking. Just like that. I've tried loads of ROMs, and nothing helps.

Windows and OS X also tend to get slow when you fill up all the disk space

Because they run mostly on spinup drives, so as the hard drive fills up, finding unfragmented free space becomes harder. And the writes happen on the inner rings which are slower, and any new updates/installs get written on the inner rings. An OS that runs on flash storage and runs a filesystem designed for flash storage (with trim commands visible to the OS), shouldn't get much slower when the drive fills up.
